We didn’t think we could love Chrissy Teigen any more than we already do - queen of Twitter, body confidence champion, general awesome, hilarious AF goddess.

Well, we were wrong.

This weekend she proved that she is an absolute hero when she paid off one woman's beauty school tuition.


Last month Mercedes Edney from North Carolina, USA, started an online fundraising page to raise the $5,995 she needed to attend aesthetician school. On the page, she wrote that she wanted to “further my skin care knowledge by getting my license in aesthetics", but couldn't afford the fees.

On Friday, Mercedes had raised just under $300, with a long way to go until she reached her target.

Enter QUEEN Chrissy, who only just went and paid off the remaining $5605.

Yep, fairy godmother Teigen made the donation with a sweet message of support for the aspiring beautician: "I've seen this be your passion for such a long time now. So excited to see you fulfil your dream!"

Just. Wow.

Mercedes was super shocked, obviously, and wrote about the moment she found out on her Insta.

The pair then went on to have the CUTEST Twitter exchange.

This isn’t the first time Chrissy's made spontaneous donations to fans.

Last year a lady called Amina innocently tweeted that she had got distracted while shopping for a blender on Amazon.

Chrissy Teigen saw the tweet and, waving her magic wand, sent this reply.

She even sent it wrapped in hilarious wrapping paper.

A blender is no college tuition fee, but Chrissy is seriously just goals.
